He introduced the term Trinity (Theophilius to Autolycus - 115-181 - introduced the word Trinity in his Book 2, chapter 15 on the creation of the 4th day) as the Latin trinitas, to the Christian vocabulary[2] and also probably the formula "three Persons, one Substance" as the Latin "tres Personae, una Substantia" (itself from the Koine Greek "treis Hypostases, Homoousios"), and also the terms vetus testamentum ("old testament") and novum testamentum ("new testament").For Full article Tertullian Open http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tertullian

Life

The Encyclopedia of Religion notes: "Human life is characterized by the need to distinguish between what is real and unreal, powerful and powerless, genuine and deceptive, pure and contaminated, clear and confused, as well as relative degrees of one extreme or the other

You have real Life because Jesus’ Father and God caused it. Is Jesus as real as you are?. Does Jesus have life in himself as He himself Stated or do the Nicene Creed Makers know more about Jesus then He did of Himself?.

Chapter II.—The Propator was known to Monogenes alone. Ambition, disturbance, and danger into which Sophia fell; her shapeless offspring: she is restored by Horos. The production of Christ and of the Holy Spirit, in order to the completion of the Æons. Manner of the production of Jesus.

Chapter III.—Texts of Holy Scripture used by these heretics to support their opinions.

Chapter IV.—Account given by the heretics of the formation of Achamoth; origin of the visible world from her disturbances.

Chapter V.—Formation of the Demiurge; description of him. He is the creator of everything outside of the Pleroma.

Chapter VI.—The threefold kind of man feigned by these heretics: good works needless for them, though necessary to others: their abandoned morals.

Chapter VII.—The mother Achamoth, when all her seed are perfected, shall pass into the Pleroma, accompanied by those men who are spiritual; the Demiurge, with animal men, shall pass into the intermediate habitation; but all material men shall go into corruption. Their blasphemous opinions against the true incarnation of Christ by the Virgin Mary. Their views as to the prophecies. Stupid ignorance of the Demiurge.

Preface.

Chapter I.—There is but one God: the impossibility of its being otherwise.

Chapter II.—The world was not formed by angels, or by any other being, contrary to the will of the most high God, but was made by the Father through the Word.

Chapter III.—The Bythus and Pleroma of the Valentinians, as well as the God of Marcion, shown to be absurd; the world was actually created by the same Being who had conceived the idea of it, and was not the fruit of defect or ignorance.

Chapter IV.—The absurdity of the supposed vacuum and defect of the heretics is demonstrated.

Chapter V.—This world was not formed by any other beings within the territory which is contained by the Father.

Chapter VI.—The angels and the Creator of the world could not have been ignorant of the Supreme God.

Chapter VII.—Created things are not the images of those Æons who are within the Pleroma.

Chapter VIII.—Created things are not a shadow of the Pleroma.

Chapter IX.—There is but one Creator of the world, God the Father: this the constant belief of the Church.

Chapter X.—Perverse interpretations of Scripture by the heretics: God created all things out of nothing, and not from pre-existent matter.

Chapter XI.—The heretics, from their disbelief of the truth, have fallen into an abyss of error: reasons for investigating their systems.

Chapter XII.—The Triacontad of the heretics errs both by defect and excess: Sophia could never have produced anything apart from her consort; Logos and Sige could not have been contemporaries.

Chapter XIII.—The first order of production maintained by the heretics is altogether indefensible.

Chapter XIV.—Valentinus and his followers derived the principles of their system from the heathen; the names only are changed.

Chapter XV.—No account can be given of these productions.

Chapter XVI.—The Creator of the world either produced of Himself the images of things to be made, or the Pleroma was formed after the image of some previous system; and so on ad infinitum.

Chapter XVII.—Inquiry into the production of the Æons: whatever its supposed nature, it is in every respect inconsistent; and on the hypothesis of the heretics, even Nous and the Father Himself would be stained with ignorance.

Chapter XVIII.—Sophia was never really in ignorance or passion; her Enthymesis could not have been separated from herself, or exhibited special tendencies of its own.

Chapter XIX.—Absurdities of the heretics as to their own origin: their opinions respecting the Demiurge shown to be equally untenable and ridiculous.
